The ability of a model to conjure just the right kind of emotion with her face and body as the photographer captures those decisive moments is part of the 'magic' of photography. There's a dynamic here that may or may not result in the best images. Working with a model (professional or not) is most rewarding when she doesn't hold back, when she's not afraid to look silly, when she infects everyone on set with her energy and when she gives more then what is asked with her - this is a portrait photographer's dream.

BPI x Netflix

We certainly had fun shooting this, well at least for me (Jay Tablante). Anything when I can mix in some form of cosplay in an actual campaign is just pure joy. How did my dog make her way into the ad? Rather spur of the moment. Since one of the shots was based on "The Crown" (the reign of Queen Elizabeth), one can safely allude she liked dogs. Well, corgis for that matter. Lo and behold, our lovely Yuna fit the bill. https://youtu.be/OssD4tKPlbo Production Credits Client: Bank of the Philippine IslandsAgency: Mullen LowePhotography: Jay Tablante

The primary challenge of this shoot is getting James into the right angle of the motorbike. Ok, there weren't any sharks in the actual shot, but given this is a composed image (which we love shooting for by the way), we had to figure out the right pose with a little experimentation along the way. We were happy with the results and this campaign is currently running on EDSA. https://youtu.be/pN1g0zgBX9A Production Credits Client: PepsiAgency: BBDO GuerreroProduction House: Clayshop Inc.Photography: Jay Tablante

I've worked with both Dingdong Dantes and Dennis Trillo a number of times all on separate occasions in the past. Cain At Abel brings these two GMA stalwarts together in one exciting, action-packed production that tells of two brothers separated at childhood and then joined together years after in cruel twists of fate. Both men are considered showbiz royalty and yet manage to remain grounded and humble having come a long way in their respective careers. I've worked with all kinds of actors in the industry and the most rewarding to collaborate with are the ones with a deep respect…

The One That Got Away

I won't deny it! I love working with pretty faces and pretty things! There's no judgement here! I'm not trying to launch a debate about what society has ingrained in our perception of beauty yada-yada. It's just human nature to always seek out the best! I'm lucky enough to work with three of the prettiest in the biz - not to mention talented and influential too! Here are some publicity photos of Rhian Ramos, Lovi Poe and Max Collins for GMA Network's 'The One That Got Away'. Production Credits Client: GMA Network Photography: Paulo Navarra
